Graphical and tabular products will show the low end, official
forecast and high end snow amounts a storm is likely to produce.
Examples of these products can be viewed at:

Narrow ranges between the minimum and maximum snowfall totals
indicate high forecast certainty, while large ranges between
minimum and maximum totals indicate low forecast certainty.
